    In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected.

    As always another great prey book. I was afraid I was not going to see another new Lucas Davenport thriller. Great plot, believeable and yet tricky.

    Say the name 'Enron' and most people believe they've heard all about the story that imperiled a presidency, destroyed a marketplace, and changed Washington and Wall Street forever. But in the hands of Kurt Eichenwald, the players we think we know and the business practices we think have been exposed are transformed into entirely new, and entirely gripping, material.

    Overall

    Who would have thought anyone could turn this business nightmare into a readable, can't wait to hear more type of story. Good read. Greed and avarice do incredible things to people. I certainly hope a lesson is learned.

    As the director of the U.S. Army's Central Identification Lab in Hawaii (CILHI), Robert Dean "Kel" McKelvey has made a career solving some of the country's most complex identification cases. Though fast approaching emotional meltdown, Kel now faces his thorniest case yet: the recovery of Jimmie Carl Trimble, a soldier from Arkansas who died a hero's death in Vietnam 40 years ago.

    Barbara says: "Pretty good for what it was..."
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    Not a bad story but not great. From the beginning I waited for the author to tie the plot into an understandable package. In the end he figured the same thing I did from the first chapter. Why would anyone care after 40+ years. I kept listening hoping for a twist which would make me understand why the whole thing was even being pursued and was very disappointed to find that even the author couldn't come up with a plausible answer for caring.

    In Washington, D.C., a cell phone rings. The White House chief of staff needs Jacob Winter now. His chief investigator and an Army Intelligence veteran, Winter knows how to move quickly and decisively, but he's never faced a problem like this. The disappearances are bad, but when the blackened body shows up barbed-wired to a tree, Winter knows there is much worse to come. And soon enough, there is. Large forces are at work, determined to do whatever it takes to achieve their ends.

    P. Minor says: "Predictable"
    "Lucas it isn't"
    Overall

    Not bad but not as good as the prey series. I found Winters role a bit unbelievable. I would not rush to listen to the next Winter series.

    When Leon Walker calls the husband-and-wife legal team of Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez, this is not good news. Walker was the man who ruined their marriage years ago. When Mike defended Walker against murder charges arising out of a stickup-gone-bad, Rosie fought about it with Mike so much that it drove a wedge between them. Now, Walker has returned, and he's got a new murder pinned to his back.

    "great listen"
    Overall

    Good listen from start to end. The narrator is great and the plot keeps moving. I also wish his other books were not abridged. Would definetely recommend this book to others.

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    Nicole says: "I couldn't turn it off!"
    "Good Listen"
    Overall

    This is not the type of book I generally listen to but I took the leap and am glad I did. The narration was excellent and the story was easy to get into and stay hooked.

  • The Bravest Man: The Story of Richard O'Kane & U.S. Submariners in the Pacific War

    Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist William Tuohy follows Richard O'Kane, America's undersea ace of aces, and a few fearless submariners, during the U.S. submarine war in the Pacific. This grueling battle saw 10 million tons of Japanese shipping sunk by U.S. submarines, but the cost to the U.S. Navy was one in five of its boats, the highest casualty rate of the U.S. armed services.

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this account of the submarine service during WWII. I would recommend it to anyone and will certainly listen to it again in the future
